HEAL National K12 Clinical Pain Career Development Award (HEAL K12) Informational Webinar

Date: September 15, 2023 - 2:00 p.m. ET to 3:00 p.m. ET

Virtual; Registration is required

Event Description

An informational webinar for those interested in learning more about the HEAL K12 Award. The awards provide a minimum of 75 percent salary support (up to $100,000 per year) plus fringe benefits, and $50,000 per year in research support costs, for up to 3 years.

This award is intended for scholars who

  • May not be ready for a traditional K award or independent research (R) award
  • Come from institutional environments that cannot adequately support the scholar's career and/or research objectives, and/or 
  • Are unable to form a mentoring team that would make them competitive for a training or independent research award in clinical pain

Successful applicants will have at least one home-institution mentor who will serve as their primary mentor. The HEAL K12 program will then work with the scholar to match them with a senior pain research mentor of national stature as well as a mentor with lived pain experience. Training is split between the scholar’s home institution and didactic resources available remotely or in-person at the University of Michigan.
